(adapted from Taste of Home Holiday & Celebrations 2010)
- 5-6 lb boneless pork shoulder roast (I used a 3.5 lb pork roast)
- 4 garlic cloves, sliced (I used minced garlic)
- 2 large onions, sliced (I used 1 onion, chopped)
- 1 c orange juice
- 1 c lime juice
- 2 T dried oregano
- 2 t ground cumin
- 1 t salt
- 1 t pepper
- For the Sandwiches:
- 4 loaves French bread (2 loaves here)
- sandwich pickles
- thin sliced deli ham
- swiss cheese, sliced
Put pork roast in a large Zip-loc bag. Mix together the garlic, onions, orange juice, lime juice, oregano, cumin, salt and pepper and pour into bag with roast. Refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.
Roast at 350 for about 2.5 hours (until a meat thermometer reaches 160).
Let the roast rest for about 10 minutes while you assemble the stuff for the sandwiches.
Cut a loaf of the French bread in half lengthwise and then into serving sizes (we got 4 sandwiches out of 1 loaf). Once you have your sandwich made the way you like it, butter the bread (top and bottom) and place it on a preheated panini grill (you could use an indoor grill or skillet, also) for about 4-5 minutes.
These were really good!!! The boys ate theirs without pickles because they aren’t fans but I think the pickles and mustard make the sandwich!!!
